    we should not defend them forever. we shouldn't have abandoned them yesterday either. you are trying to make this all or nothing, black and white....but this is neither.

    If it is neither, then why are you saying it is horrible?

    Why would we pick the Kurds over Turkey?

    What reason?

    Here is another thought, what other country is stepping up to save the Kurds?

    Why do we have to pick one or the other? We haven't until two days ago.

    why does that matter? it's irrelevant

    Obama did infact pick the Kurds over Turkey.... That is why troops are there....

    Then why are you mad? If you dont have a reason for our troops to be in harms way, there is literally ZERO point to having them there.....

    Our troops are there to fight ISIS. The Kurds were helping us. But hell, why miss a chance to whine and blame Obama right? I mean...OBAMA BAD!

    stop trying to change the subject. you asked why other countries weren't running to aid the Kurds and I told you that question was irrelevant. We are the ones who allied ourselves with them to take down the Caliphate. They are imprisoning roughly 12,000 ISIS fighters so we don't have to. It doesn't have to be the Kurds or the Turks. We can be allies with them both in the fight against ISIS.

    We didn't need troops there in the 1st place..... Which was Trumps point. Many agree with him and said so pre 2014. Same people are pissed now. Odd....


    How is talking about the reasons we need to defend the Kurds changing the subject. If they are so valuable, why is no one else helping?

    Why must we help?

    because they helped us. no matter how this is parsed, this is not well thought out and seems reactionary. the kurds, regardless of how the involvement came to be had a large part in helping to put down isis. in this trump is wrong.

    also, it's not the 50 troops, it's what they represent

    We didn't need to fight ISIS?

    Whose job is it to help your buddy out when he gets jumped by 2-3 dudes? You going to run and look for help or are you going to jump in there and start slinging squares? Is it someone else's job to jump in and help him? Are you going to tell him afterward, "I wonder why no one else helped you out?"

    Not in Syria. Why do we need to fight in Syria?

    Who is our buddy? I would question my buddy if I was his only friend. Might tell me something about both of us.
